Mad Men star Jon Hamm talks fame
Man Men's Jon Hamm has been speaking to the UK's InStyle magazine about the complications of fame and how he's glad it came to him relatively late in life. Hamm got his big break at the age of 36 and thinks he would have struggled to cope with it had it come at an earlier age.
He said: 'I think if you find crazy success at a very young age, then it can be quite dangerous. The road to celebrity is littered with people who got too much too soon and weren't equipped to handle it.'
Hamm has been with his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt for 15 years and thinks one of the reasons for their success is because they've not really been in the spotlight.
He said: 'I don't think there's a secret. Any relationship is challenging when you're under the microscope we've put ourselves under, but it's your personal life and it remains personal.'
Jon also says people constantly come up to him and offer to buy him drinks as they think he's like his 'Mad Men' character, the heavy-drinking and womanising Don Draper but he's forced to turn the majority of them down, stating that his alcohol tolerance is far below that of the character he portrays in Mad Men. "No one can really drink as much as Don Draper."
